CHANDIGARH: Aam Aadmi Party  slammed Congress for  putting forth the name of 1984 Delhi Sikh genocide accused Kamal Nath as CM  Madhya Pardesh  and  termed it as rubbing salt on the wounds of  sikh victims instead of providing justice.

In a press release issued from AAP office, Leader of Opposition Harpal Cheema said that after 1984 genocide, name of Kamal Nath was figured prominently as accused of leading the  groups attacking sikhs. In the enquiry report of Nanawati Commission and two other enquiry reports  Kamal Nath's name was prominently figured in the list of accused persons but no action had been  taken against him during Congress rule in Centre and  during the NDA rule of 10 years in which SAD was a part , Instead the sikh victims were teased by awarding prominent posts in Govt. and party level to  the main accused Sajjan Kumar and Jagdish Titler. Mr. Cheema asserted that it was clearly mentioned in  Nanawati   Commission report that  on 1st November 1984 Kamal Nath was leading a crowd  of more than 4000  people who attacked Gurudawara Rakabganj Sahib and  put it on fire and killed many innocent sikhs. He added that Nanawati Commission had not given him clean chit even in its final report. He said that even prominent Journalist Sanjay Suri had substantiated his claim that  Kamal Nath was leading the miscreants in an affidavit submitted before Mishra Commission. Apart from this an eye witness Mukhtiar Singh had also accused Kamal Nath of directing the  the culprits killing the sikhs at that time. Even an English Daily newspaper had reported the the presence of 2 hours at site in its 2nd  November 1984 issue, he added.

LOP said that in spite of all  proofs,  the Congress party continued  awarding these accused leaders with the plum posts and asserted   that AAP will strongly  oppose such decisions. He demanded  that Rahul Gandhi  should immediately  reverse this decision which had caused a wide spread resentment among the whole Sikh Community. He also appealed the Prime Minister to immediately reopen the cases against Kamal Nath and  initiate a time bound inquiry, so that strict punishment can be given to the accused of sikh genocide and justice to the victims.

Cheema also sought clarification from Chief Minister Capt. Amarinder Singh and Congress president Sunil Jakhar on it and reminded that  during 2016, the decision of appointing Kamal Nath as in charge of Punjab had to withdrawn after a strong resentment from Punjab people.
